Oreo-Bottom Dirt Cupcakes

Who doesn’t like an Oreo-bottom chocolate cupcake? Ok, so if you’re nixing sugar, are going paleo or are otherwise on a healthy eating kick this really, really, really, REALLY isn’t for you. But, if you’re up for a tasty treat or have a party to plan (these cute cakes are perfect for summer picnics or backyard kids’ birthday bashes), give them a try!

I’m not the best baker. That said, even I can make an Oreo-bottom cupcake. They really take very little skill, and as a bonus the kids can pitch in and help to cook. I’ve made these little goodies before. This time I’m going with a dirt theme. Not that you, your child or party guests are begging to eat dirt, but it’s a fun way to dress up a cupcake (and it adds even more chocolate).

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Chocolate cake mix – If you’ve got a favorite recipe, feel free to use it. If you’re challenged in the baking area (like I am), there’s no shame in using a boxed mix. That’s what it’s there for.

·        White frosting – Again, use your own recipe or try the pre-packaged stuff. I used a vanilla-marshmallow flavor.

·        Oreos

·        Cupcake tins with liners

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Mix the cake batter.

2.     Place one Oreo at the bottom of each lined cupcake pan compartment.

3.     Pour the batter over the cookies.

4.     Bake the cupcakes.

5.     Crush the rest of the Oreos. Use a blender or food processor to turn the cookies into a sand-like consistency.

6.     Take the cupcakes out of the oven (after they are completely baked), and let them cool.

7.     Frost the cakes.

8.     Sprinkle the cookie crumbles on top.

The cookies on top of the cupcakes will look like dirt! You can also add a few gummy worms or chocolate syrup (it looks like mud), for effect.
